Kayaking off Catalina Island

My son shared a news story a few days ago with this headline: “Pacific coast shark attacks on the rise and kayakers may be most at risk“.  He suggested I take up another hobby. While it’s easy to be fearful, I’ve thought it through and decided no, I’m not going to let the sharks win, […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations of a Theme

Variations of a Theme is this week’s Photo Challege from WoodPress. I chose records, aka albums, LP’s, licorice pizza, platters… for my theme. The pictures were taken at The Last Bookstore, an incredible place for books and records in downtown Los Angeles. ~SueBee

Downtown Los Angeles from the Westside

Photos taken a couple years ago of Los Angeles city center at the golden hour as the sun was sinking into the Pacific Ocean. I’ve been glancing through countless folders of pictures… thought I’d upload some oldies but goodies once in awhile. ~SueBee

SueBee Bought a Subaru!

Yesterday was a big day for me! I finally bought a new vehicle, a Subaru Crosstrek, after years of driving a little Toyota Tacoma pickup truck… that now has 227,000 miles on it. Being a sentimental sort, I’m a bit sad to part with my truck, but not having space to keep it or desire […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

For this week’s photo challenge on the word Silence , I chose this picture of my oldest daughter, Angelika. I took it at the most quiet place I’ve ever been… on California’s coast north of Santa Cruz. The road was far away, the ocean waves were quieted by the cliffs, there wasn’t a sound, just silence. […]

Descanso Gardens in Early January, Part 1

(12 photos) I visited Descanso Gardens today, a beautiful spot near my home town of La Crescenta, about a dozen miles north of downtown Los Angeles. The weather couldn’t have been better, with visitors at a minimum. The plants looked tired and dusty but the camellias showed off their beauty regardless. I think they’re truly […]

2017 Washed Away

(4 photos) 2017 is behind us, inscribed in the history books. For me and my family, it was a fabulous, very busy year, with two weddings, one in May and the other just a few weeks ago. Health and happiness were generally in good order throughout the year. One sad note, though, was the passing […]
